Car? You bought a new car when there are Tigers and Street Triples and Ducatis and BMW1200Ses gathering dust? (Seruzawa's finger hovers over the "ban" button). Explain yourself!

Good man, go buy another Ford while your at it. We bought ford stock at the beginning of the year and doubled our money. Though I know better than to actually buy one (fool me once). Good luck with it!

No problems with the Bullitt in 22K miles, thus far. And we haven't been exactly babyin' it, either - with 7 Auto-X's out of the last 10 weeks......... (and managed to bring home 3 1st-place trophies in that time!)

I WILL say that the guy who beat us at the Divisional this last weekend (in a Shelby GT) DID manage to break HIS car - snapped the spindle in two, right between the lower strut mounting-bolts.

But he's on Race-Hoosiers and more heavily-damped Koni shocks, I'm still running street rubber and stock dampers (which would about make us right-about even - I'm roughly 4-5 seconds behind him, Koni's would net me 2-3 seconds, Hoosiers mebbe 2-3 more..............)

Well if I hadn't just bought that KLX I might have been in a position to go check out the FJR that just popped up on Craigslist, dammit...
